Sharbot Lake to Ottawa 2

Sharbot Lake to Ottawa
Enjoyed a few nice tours of the lake over the past few days! Last night a thunderstorm passed through and left us with a full rainbow. If you can zoom in to the picture there is a hawk with a fish in its talons! Bob dropped me off at the highway for 7am and I ...

Still at the cottage 2

Still at the cottage
Well I am still hanging my hat (fishing rod) at the cottage on Bob’s Lake, about 65km north of Kingston. I was planning on cycling today but a 60L dry bag I ordered from Vancouver to replace the worn carry bag (that wasn’t waterproof) didn’t arrive by FedEx as expected on Friday. Looks like I ...

Havelock to Sharbot Lake 3

Today I was reminded how fragile our life is and to the reality of the risks we take in life. I will not be highlighting my day today in respect for the loss of Robert and Irene Booth who died yesterday in a collision just west of Nipigon while fulfilling their dream to cycle across ...

Alliston to Port Perry 3

Alliston to Port Perry
What a perfect day for cycling. Morning started off cool at 830am as I cycled through the lessor used county roads near Alliston. Passed thru Tottenham, Schomberg, Kettleby, then on to Aurora. Passed over Hwy 400, forgot how busy the 400 series hwys are. Biked a short distance on Yonge street and forced myself to ...

Owen Sound to Alliston 1

Owen Sound to Alliston
Left the Sunny Acres Campground just before 11am knowing I only had 110km to do with a tailwind virtually the entire way. The owners of the campground were great, just took over the camp this past year. On Friday and Saturday nights the seasonal campers get together at the Rec Hall and host a concert ...

Tobermory to Owen Sound 1

Tobermory to Owen Sound
Finished up my day off yesterday with some bike repairs. Betty broke another back spoke, thinking the flat spokes I have aren’t the best for long trips? She also had a loose back wheel hub. Had a great day with my parents who made the trip from Ridgetown to spend the day with me. We ...

Whitefish Falls to Tobermory 1

Whitefish Falls to Tobermory
Sorry for the late blog…hit the road at 830am with lots of time to make the 550pm ferry from South Baymouth to Tobermory. It was already HOT! It is expected to feel like 45 degrees. Our first stop was Little Current, unfortunately we weren’t able to see the swinging bridge make way for the boats ...

Blind River to Whitefish Falls 3

Blind River to Whitefish Falls
Riding with Dave again today we headed off about 830am and met Scott (aka Jesus) and Walter (from Montreal) just past Blind River. We had a convoy travelling down hwy 17, with little shoulder most of the way it seemed safer in the group? Scott, Walter, Dave and I just north of Espanola, about 100km ...

Sault Ste Marie to Blind River 2

Sault Ste Marie to Blind River
I wish I could tell you I had a busy day yesterday in the Soo, but honestly not a lot to do! Met the owner of Velorution Cycle in the morning (Andre). Staying at Velorution was the highlight. Met several cycle tourists in the two nights there…Jesus showed up, the Wye family caught up as ...
